Biography

Ronald Bilius Weasley (March 1, 1980). Was born to Arthur Weasley and Molly Prewett Weasley, the sixth of their seven children, and the youngest son. He has five older brothers, Bill, Charlie, Percy, twins Fred and George, and a younger sister, Ginny.

 

Ron grew up in the family home, The Burrow, near the village of Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon. The family is poor but extremely close-knit. Ron is conscious of his lack of money and he feels frustrated by his family's modest life style. However the Weasleys are an old and well-known pure-blood Wizarding family.

 

He have the mark of the Weasley family, shining red hair and blue eyes; He's tall, thin, with freckles, a long nose and big hands and feet. His middle name is the same as that of a deceased uncle, who is mentioned in Prisoner of Azkaban as having seen a Grim and died shortly thereafter.

 

He is terrified of spiders, as seen in the Chamber of Secrets. He is an excellent Wizard's Chess player, and has some knowledge of Wizarding law, thanks to his father's position.

 

Following the footsteps of his brothers Ron is becoming the sixth Weasley to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991. Ron and Harry met on the platform 9 3/4 waiting for the Express to Hogwarts. Once there was sorted and belongs to Gryffindor house. There knows Hermione Granger and they become his best friends. He plays a key role in many of Harry's adventures. Usually he receives a small part of the recognition, while Harry's fame almost always puts him at the centre of attention. This sometimes creates a rift between the two friends. But he won a Special Award for Services to the School in his second year.

 

The magical abilities of Ron are average, do not excel nor fail in any specific subject, although with the Harry's help it seems to have good practice in the defensive magic. Ron have earned 7 O.W.L.s by Astronomy, Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Defense Against the Dark Arts , Herbology, Potions and Transfiguration and he failed with Divination and History of Magic.

 

Ron has a sarcastic sense of humour, and often has difficulty taking anything seriously. Generally good-natured, sometimes emotional and impulsive. His immaturity, and his lack of subtlety, forms a contrast with Hermione, who describes him as being "an insensitive wart", we can see this reaction particularly evident in his attitudes with the girls and the Cho and Harry's relationship.

 

Ron seems to be interesting in Hermione, possibly a romantic relationship, but for now it's in the arguing and teasing stage. He was highly annoyed when Hermione went to the Yule Ball with Viktor Krum, but it never took the time to invite her and he ended up going to the Ball with Padma Patil.

 

Ron is an avid Quidditch fan and his favorite team is the Chudley Cannons, his bedroom at the Burrow (an attic room at the top of the stairs) is plastered with posters of the team. Ron's broom, however, like everything else he owns was a hand-me-down Shooting Star. In August of 1995, however, Ron became a prefect and was rewarded by his mother with a new broom, a Cleansweep Eleven. That fall he tried out for the Gryffindor Quidditch team and was made Keeper.

 

Ron and Hermione and a group of other students they formed a group to study Defense Against the Dark Arts from Harry during his fifth year. As a member of Dumbledore's Army, as they called themselves, Ron fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. He was wounded in that battle and spent some days in the Hospital Wing recovering afterwards.
